Human Resource Management Help Needed

Are you a Human Resource Management (HRM) professional or manager? If not, do you know one?

I am redesigning and teaching a graduate Human Resource class in the Fall, Research Process and Methodology at New York University, and I am looking to speak (briefly) with HR professionals to ask them one simple question:

  1. What research skills or methods do you or your team need to know and understand to do your job?

If anybody can direct me to any responses, please either email me at jk904 (at) nyu (dot) edu or please comment below. I want to meet the needs of my future students, and what better way to do this than by asking people already in the field?

Thank you.
